    Hello

    On my cpanel i was enable the memcache using easy Apache and i thought that this will work for caching static content like some images and so on.

    Today i was looking to install a torrent system and i was read on installation:

    Install memcached on the server and memcache php extension and this confuse me a lot.

    Does the memcache using easy Apache setup cache anything at all?

    Do i have to use memcached as well?

    Please give me some more info on this but easy to understand :)

    Also i was wondering if i can use memcache (static content) and xcache (as it is for php) together or not and do i have to configure anything special for this kind of setup?

    Thank you

    Thank you

    In simple terms, memcache is PHP extension for using memcached.

    Memcached is the caching eingine/server/service whatever you want to call it.

    Without each other they are useless.

    You will have to install memcached manually.

    Yes, as you already have memcache installed, you just have to install memcached.
